those handlebars make it look like the bike is having an identity crisis!
It is! It lost a handmade side cover on the highway and went nuts.

So i changed the swingarm bearings, used a bearing puller so was a breeze.

Welded some stellite on the puller to go 30+mm
All went back together with fresh grease quite easy. Remember to keep the rear wheel on while undoing the transmission shaft bolts. Need the rear brake!
That one was finished..

yes! Got something done! Cut some old springs redneck style and heated with a torch to flatten the cut end, then painted them copper before i switched the monoshit springs out. Actually rides pretty ok!
This winter i might pull them apart again for some proper copper plating.

Was out for a bit with the thing last week, just kinda started it to hear it howl again. And the regulator didnt crackle and smoke anymore.. it charged maybe 12,5 volts but more than nothing so took it for a quick spin. It pulls really well and the engine is very mechanically smooth and free revving by now. Next year i may dare to install that n.o.s regulator unit.
